Striped Ribbed Beanie Using Shibui Haven

Striped Ribbed Beanie Using Shibui Haven



The Design

"A bit of striping, a bit of ribbing—a bunch of cozy!"

This Free Churchmouse Pattern has been retired because the yarn we used for it has been discontinued.

This free pattern blends the sportiness of stripes with the snug squish of ribbing to create a cozy, classic beanie! Our design uses a clever little trick to smooth up the stripes within the ribbing texture—an all-knit row (instead of the K2/P2 ribbing) as you change colors crisps up that definition!

We knit the Striped Ribbed Beanie in two colors of Shibui Haven, a DK-weight blend of extra fine merino and cashmere. This lovely yarn produces a lightweight, pillowy fabric that emanates soft and cozy! In this simple, striped hat, Haven fulfills our deep-seated love of cuddling up.

The Details

Sample shown in colors (A) Soiree and (B) Rose.

US 3 (3.25mm) 16"/40cm circular needle and set of 5 double-points, or size to obtain gauge.
